Woodland Christian High School ACADEMICS & EXTRACURRICULARS

Curriculum Liberal Arts

[Show definition of Curriculum]

Central to your child's school experience is the underlying curriculum taught in the classroom. "Curriculum" refers to both what is taught and how it's taught. When considering the different curricula outlined in the next few pages, keep in mind that few schools fall neatly into one category or another. Most schools' curricula comprise a blend of best practices drawn from multiple curriculum types. Having said that, most schools do have a general overall curriculum type. These are identified for each school on OurKids.net.

Curriculum approach at WoodlandCHS: Liberal Arts

WoodlandCHS has a Liberal Arts approach to Curriculum (as opposed to Traditional, Progressive, Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Waldorf approach).

[Show: About Liberal Arts?]

Liberal Arts curricula share with traditional programs their emphasis on core knowledge-acquisition, but tend to borrow more best practices from the progressive approach. A Liberal Arts program might still feature group work and projects, for example, contrary to the more singular emphasis on tests and essays at a Traditional program.

Curriculum at schools on OurKids.net:
  Liberal arts - 14%
  Traditional - 42%
  Progressive - 31%
  Montessori - 11%
  Reggio Emilia - 0%
  Waldorf - 2%

What WoodlandCHS says about their overall curriculum and approach:

At Woodland we value a holistic approach to education. We provide a wide variety of curricular and co-curricular options in order to Enfold, Engage and Equip students for lives of Christian faith and service. In addition to the OSSD, our Woodland Diploma requirements ensure that students take courses from a variety of discipline areas. This balance provides students with a well-rounded education in Math & Sciences, Arts, English & Languages, Humanities, Canadian & World Studies, Business, Computers & Technological Studies, and Physical Education & Health Related Studies. All of our Woodland courses are foundationally built on one or more Christian Worldview Themes. These themes connect the essential focus of our courses to the Biblical story of “Creation, Fall & Redemption, and Restoration”. They also highlight connections between the courses, discipline areas, and co-curricular activities of our school program.

Pedagogies and subject courses:

  • Mathematics

    Equal Balance

    Mathematics approach at WoodlandCHS: Equal Balance

    WoodlandCHS has an Equal Balance approach to Mathematics (as opposed to Traditional Math, Discovery Math approach).

    [Show: About Equal Balance?]

    These math programs feature an equal balance of “Traditional” and “Discovery” methods.

    Mathematics at schools on OurKids.net:
      Equal balance - 69%
      Traditional math - 26%
      Discovery math - 5%

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    Mathematics is a wide-ranging subject area; beautifully simple and yet complex at the same time. It is an activity that involves the exploration, contemplation, and enjoyment of abstract concepts, theoretical principles, as well as problem solving skill development. It is also a tool that offers practical connections to real-world problems and insight into patterns in our world. All of these aspects allow us to explore and experience the richness of beauty, complexity, harmony, and precision that God has imprinted into his creation. Mathematics informs how effective and honest use of measurements, information, models and statistics can be used to positively impact our world. It is highly recommended that Woodland students take one mathematics course each year, as critical thinking, problem solving, and numeracy are essential 21st century skills.

  • Science

    Equal Balance

    Science approach at WoodlandCHS: Equal Balance

    WoodlandCHS has an Equal Balance approach to Science (as opposed to Expository, Inquiry approach).

    [Show: About Equal Balance?]

    Science programs that balance expository and inquiry learning equally will likely have an equal blend of tests and experiments; direct, textbook-based instruction and student-centred projects.

    Science at schools on OurKids.net:
      Equal balance - 70%
      Expository - 5%
      Inquiry - 25%

    Teaching approach:

    It is the goal of our Science department to prepare students for a life in fellowship with, service to God. In order to do this, students need to see themselves as unique and special creatures who are also an intricate part of the body of Christ. While studies in chemistry, physics and biology help students to appreciate the detail and wonder of living and non-living systems, they also reinforce the fact that nothing exists in isolation. In seeking to understand the created, we come one step closer to a deeper understanding and appreciation for our Creator! A firm understanding of scientific methods and theories is essential. Not only are we able to use appropriate technology to minister to the needs of others, but we are also able to speak to issues such as reproductive technology, genetic engineering, environmental problems and misuses of technology with a Christian voice.

    [Show: About Equal Balance?]

    These literature programs draw in equal measure from “Traditional” and “Social Justice” programs.

    Literature at schools on OurKids.net:
      Equal balance - 74%
      Traditional - 22%
      Social justice - 4%

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    The English program is made up of a series of interconnected and consecutive courses which provide students with opportunities to develop an awareness of, understanding of, and appreciation for language and literature. This program equips students with the academic skills necessary for post-secondary education and/or careers in the workplace. These skills centre on proficiency, clarity, and imagination in writing as well as accuracy and depth in comprehension. Other aspects of communication are also integrated, most particularly oral communication and the study of media. A Christian world-view is expressed in all the courses. Students work at unpacking the literature being studied through the lens of a Christian worldview; evaluating human nature in all its aspects. Students are encouraged to critique content and search for truth in the various works of literature studied, moving beyond literary study into personal evaluation and response to literature which challenges, develops, and builds personal faith.

  • Humanities and Social Sciences

    Equal Balance

    Humanities and Social Sciences approach at WoodlandCHS: Equal Balance

    WoodlandCHS has an Equal Balance approach to Humanities and Social Sciences (as opposed to Perennialism, Pragmatism approach).

    [Show: About Equal Balance?]

    These programs represent an equal balance between the perennialist and pragmatic approach to teaching the humanities and social sciences.

    Humanities and Social Sciences at schools on OurKids.net:
      Equal balance - 81%
      Perennialism - 8%
      Pragmatism - 11%

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    The Humanities options allow students to explore a wide variety of subjects (including family, food, philosophy, and the foundations of society) as we seek to move from identifying brokenness, to redemptive practice, and ultimately the hope of restoration. Students are encouraged to identify healthy practices that apply to all areas of life (physical, emotional and spiritual), and work towards incorporating these healthy habits of body, mind and heart into everyday life.

  • Foreign Languages

    Communicative

    Foreign Languages approach at WoodlandCHS: Communicative

    WoodlandCHS has a Communicative approach to Foreign Languages (as opposed to Audio-Lingual, Equal Balance approach).

    [Show: About Communicative?]

    The communicative method of language acquisition emphasizes the use of the target language in authentic contexts. The approach commonly features interactive group work, games, authentic texts, and opportunities to learn about the cultural background of the language. Drills and quizzes may still be used, but less frequently than with the audio-lingual method.

    Foreign Languages at schools on OurKids.net:
      Communicative - 34%
      Audio-lingual - 3%
      Equal balance - 63%

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    In today's society, communication skills, awareness and appreciation for other cultures, and the development of individual learning styles are essential. The curriculum offered by the French department is based on themes of high interest to the learner. Within each theme, a variety of language functions and related structural ideas as well as different items of cultural uniqueness are introduced. The French program provides for a balanced development of skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing within the framework of a communicative-experiential approach. Students are encouraged to see language as a gift from God to be used for clear and positive communication between ourselves and others. Through the study of French, students will also come to a better understanding of the culture and heritage of those with whom we share this country. By critically studying a second language and culture, students gain a better understanding of their own language and culture.

  • Fine Arts

    Creative

    Fine Arts approach at WoodlandCHS: Creative

    WoodlandCHS has a Creative approach to Fine Arts (as opposed to Receptive, Equal Balance approach).

    [Show: About Creative?]

    Creative arts programs are studio-driven. While historical works and movements may still be taught to add context to the program, students mainly engage in making art (visual, musical, theatrical, etc). The goal is use the actual practice of art to help educate students’ emotions, cognition, and ethos.

    Fine Arts at schools on OurKids.net:
      Creative - 34%
      Receptive - 2%
      Equal balance - 64%

    Program offers:

    Visual studio philosophy:

    Expressive
    Disciplined

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    We are made in the image of the Creator and we therefore have innate creativity which is expressed by different people in different ways. The Arts program at Woodland provides a wonderful opportunity for students to develop their creative talents the areas of visual art, music, and drama. Our Arts courses seek to educate, refine, and mobilize the inherent creativity in all students. All courses have a hands-on focus with both theory, Christian worldview and performance fully integrated in each.

  • Computers and Technology

    Medium integration

    Computers and Technology approach at WoodlandCHS: Medium integration

    WoodlandCHS has a Medium integration approach to Computers and Technology (as opposed to Light integration, Heavy integration approach).

    [Show: About Medium integration?]

    Effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy through the curriculum. However, this is not a dominant focus.

    Computers and Technology at schools on OurKids.net:
      Medium integration - 51%
      Light integration - 17%
      Heavy integration - 32%

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    The world around us is a constantly changing environment. We see computers, technology, and business playing an ever increasing role in the workforce, academics, the home, and the church. A background understanding of how computers work and how they can be used creatively is essential. The technology program has been designed to offer students an introduction to technological studies through practical experience. Students will expand their understanding of technological skills, they will develop an ability to analyze and solve problems and they will perform tasks logically and effectively. Students will be shown the need for appreciation, pride, and satisfaction that may be found in completing quality work through practical exercises.


    Program covers:

    Subjectoffered
    Computer science
    Robotics
    Web design
  • Physical Education

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    Woodland seeks to provide extra-curricular activities programs that supplement the academic program of our school. We recognize that God has gifted students in a variety of ways, including abilities in athletics. Our Athletic Program provides an opportunity for students to develop and use their God-given abilities. We also believe that participation in extra-curricular activities, especially athletics, provides a good opportunity to encourage students in their relationships with Jesus Christ. These activities also enhance the atmosphere of the Woodland student body, providing students and parents opportunities to express positive school spirit. And finally, extra-curricular activities provide an opportunity to express our faith to other schools, coaches, and officials.

  • Religious Education

    We have one or two required religion courses.

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    All students in grades 9 and 10 take one half credit of Bible each year (Old Testament and New Testament focus), and have opportunity to choose two or more of our senior perspectives courses (taken from the Humanities, and Canadian & World Studies departments, as well as other approved courses). All of our Woodland courses are foundationally built on one or more of our Worldview Themes. These themes connect the essential focus of courses to the Biblical story of “Creation, Fall & Redemption, and Restoration”. They also highlight connections between the courses, discipline areas, and co-curricular activities of our school program.

  • Advanced Placement courses

  • Sex and health education

    Not Ontario curriculum

    Sex and health education approach at WoodlandCHS: Not Ontario curriculum

    WoodlandCHS has a Not Ontario curriculum approach to Sex and health education (as opposed to Follows provincial curriculum approach).

    [Show: About Not Ontario curriculum?]

    The sex education curriculum does NOT follow the provincial one taught in public schools - either in terms of structure, pacing, focus, and/or tone.

    Sex and health education at schools on OurKids.net:
      Does not follow prrovincial curriculum - 50%
      Follows provincial curriculum - 50%

    Approach to sex and health education: Fairly value-based

    WoodlandCHS has a approach Fairly value-based (as opposed to Mostly value-neutral approach).
    [Show: About Fairly value-based?]

    Sex is sometimes taught from a particular moral or ethical standpoint. Sometimes particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) are invoked when teaching sex and related issues .

    WoodlandCHS has a approach Traditional (as opposed to Progressive approach).
    [Show: About Traditional?]

    This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage. Alternatively, this approach might simply involve placing less emphasis on sex outside of the context of marriage and more emphasis on abstinence. Or finally, it might just involve focusing less on sex outside of the context of marriage.

    What WoodlandCHS says:

    Woodland takes a biblical approach to teach children about family and sexuality that integrates with the guidelines and content of the Ontario Curriculum.

Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

[Show definition of Curriculum Pace]

This refers to the rate at which students move through the curriculum (e.g., topics, textbook material, skills, etc.). Curriculum pace is often defined in comparison to provincial standards.

Curriculum Pace approach at WoodlandCHS: Standard-enriched

WoodlandCHS has a Standard-enriched approach to Curriculum Pace (as opposed to Accelerated, Student-paced approach).

[Show: About Standard-enriched?]

Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

Academic Culture Supportive

[Show definition of Academic Culture]

Through the collective mindset of teachers, administrators, students, and parents, each school develops and maintains its own academic culture. This generally relates to the norms and expectations created around academic performance. Many parents look to private schools because they want a specific type of culture. Some want a rigorous environment that will elevate their child to new heights. Others want a nurturing environment that will help their child develop a passion for learning.

Academic Culture approach at WoodlandCHS: Supportive

WoodlandCHS has a Supportive approach to Academic Culture (as opposed to Rigorous approach).

[Show: About Supportive?]

A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

Academic Culture at schools on OurKids.net:
  Supportive - 50%
  Rigorous - 50%

Developmental priorities Spiritual

[Show definition of Developmental priorities]

Schools have specific goals regarding how they want their educate and develop their students. This is part of a school's overall philosophy or vision, which is contained in its mission statement. While they tend have several developmental aims, schools tend to priortize certain aims, such as intellectual, social, spiritual, emotional, or physical development.

Primary Developmental Priority: Spiritual

The goal is to cultivate "individuals with inner resourcefulness, strong faith and respect for God or a higher power."

Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced

Equal emphasis is placed on a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social and physical cultivation.

Gifted learner support Dedicated class; in-class adaptations

[Show definition of Gifted learner support]

Schools support students with gifted or advanced learning abilities in a several ways. Whether they offer a full-time gifted program or part-time support, they normally provide some form of accelerated learning (delivering content at a faster pace) or enrichment (covering content more broadly or deeply). Many schools also offer a wide range of in-class adaptations to support advanced learners, such as guided independent studies, project-based learning, and career exploration.

Curriculum Delivery: Enrichment

The main focus is on enrichment. This means that while students may work at a marginally quicker pace than public school peers, the primary aim is to study subject in broader and deeper ways.


In-class adaptations

Program Offered
Custom subject enrichment (special arrangement)
Custom curriculum compacting (special arrangement)

Homework Policy

[Show definition of Homework Policy]

Homework is work that's assigned to students for completion outside of regular class time. There's a long-standing debate over homework. Should homework be assigned to school-age children? If so, in what grades? And how much homework should be assigned? In selecting the right school for your child, it's important to look closely at a school's homework policy.

Nightly homework

In grade Gr. 12, WoodlandCHS students perform an average of 1.5 hours of homework per night.

WoodlandCHS90 mins90 mins90 mins90 mins
Site Average75 mins86 mins102 mins111 mins

This school frequently "flips the classroom": asks students to learn material at home and do the "homework" in-class (with teacher support).

This information is not currently available.

Report Card Policy

[Show definition of Report Card Policy]

While all schools measure individual progress and achievement in students, they have different ways of doing this. For instance, many traditional schools gauge progress through report cards, which give students lettered or numbered grades. Other schools, meanwhile, measure progress in other ways, either in addition to or instead of giving grades. For instance, they may offer prose-based feedback (i.e, comments), academic achievement reporting, habits and behaviour reporting, and parent-teacher meetings. In choosing the right school for your child, take a close look at its policy for measuring the individual progress of students.

Extracurricular Activities

While academics remain the priority for most private schools, many also place a strong focus on a well-rounded education and encourage participation in extracurricular activities such as sports, music, arts, or clubs. Involvement in extracurriculars helps stimulate students in their studies, makes them more motivated to learn, and can make school more enjoyable and fulfilling. Extracurricular activities can also provide students with a much-needed break from the stresses of academics, while helping them to develop skills and allowing them to take part in valuable social situations.
